The State of the Science

Our technology is based on the groundbreaking work of Dr. Nina Kraus, Professor of Communications and Hugh S. Knowles Chair at Northwestern University. Dr. Kraus has authored and co-authored hundreds of peer-reviewed research papers demonstrating the correlation between FFR and neurological conditions from autism to concussions. Her work has been highlighted in TIME, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and numerous other news publications.
